Darrah Brustein is an Atlanta transplant, by way of Philadelphia and Baltimore. She holds a BA from Emory University in Religion and Italian, which she naturally parlayed into her first job in wholesale apparel sales. Ready for a new challenge, Darrah and her twin brother launched Equitable Payments in 2009. Together they work with businesses to help find them the best fit and lowest cost solution to accept credit card payments. Seeing a need for young professionals to have an environment where they can network both socially and professionally, she launched Atlanta Under 40 in 2011 and Atlanta Lawyers Under 40 in 2012. She also launched Finance Whiz Kids in 2012, a series of kids books that teach elementary aged children the basics of financial literacy.
When Darrah’s not working, she’s volunteering as Chairman of the Board for Emory’s Atlanta Young Alumni chapter and board member with the College Alumni Board. She is also amongst the inaugural class of the Forum of Global Shapers in Atlanta, a hub of the world economic forum for ‘young global leaders’, working to become Altanta’s leading think tank for young minds assisting non-profits. She also spends time as an ambassador at the Metro Atlanta Chamber.
